Data type optimization automatically iterates through various fixed-point configurations to choose the optimal heterogeneous data types while meeting tolerance constraints on the numerical behavior of your system. The optimization seeks to minimize an objective function, such as total bit width or total operator counts, using fixed-point data types for an efficient design.
You can optimize data types using the
fxpopt function at the command line, or by using the
Optimized Fixed-Point Conversion workflow
in the Fixed-Point Tool.
|Optimize data types of a system|
Convert data types in your model to fixed point in one of three ways.
Use signal tolerances and model verification blocks to verify behavior of fixed-point implementation.
Optimize data types in a system based on specified tolerances.
Use the Fixed-Point Tool to optimize the data types of a system using multiple simulation scenarios.
Define multiple simulation scenarios for range collection and verification.
